Empowering Latinas to Live Healthier Lives
In a world saturated with health and fitness content, it’s surprising to think that an entire segment of women has been left out. If you take a closer look, you’ll quickly see that healthy lifestyle approaches are not designed with Latinas in mind.
When Ana and her daughter Sada came together, they set out to change the wellness industry with a culturally inspiring solution that would help Latinas achieve a healthier life. Together they created a dedicated space to empower Latinas throughout their journey, starting with a community built on confianza (trust)…De Las Mías.
De Las Mias works to empower Latinas to prevent chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and lifestyle-related cancers, through culturally and linguistically tailored, evidence-based health information, interactive tools and social support. The De Las Mias program is working to create a culture of health for ourselves, our families and our community.
We are always trying to look a certain way that we are told. The De Las Mías app helped me think about what my elders used to do to stay healthy. It was less about getting on the treadmill—it was more about having fun, being outdoors, and spending time with family.”Leti
Unidos for a Healthy Life
Although diabetes and obesity statistics have worsened over the last ten years, on the upside, Latinas are early adopters of smartphones and social media. Ana and Sada saw this as an opportunity to deliver the De Las Mías message through an app, and provide culturally relevant information within a supportive community of tech-savvy Latinas.
De Las Mías helps Latinas build a healthy, balanced lifestyle through science-based approaches, healthy recipes, fitness, and community and family support. We believe that a healthy lifestyle is a result of knowledge, self-love, and empowerment. We also believe that we can be healthy at any size.
With the help of your madrinas, comadres, and friends, we show you a path that leads you to a powerful, fun, and supported life.
